Anyone use them? I need to get a new set and saw these online. Anyone have the good the bad or the ugly on these items.

The only thing i'll say is that I have had little luck with any hackle pliers that don't have the little rubber grips in the jaws...

By rotary hackle pliers, so you mean the ones with a long stick with the plier on the end?

If so, I though they were for parachute style hackles.?.?

Rotating hackle pliers in action:

Rotating Hackle Pliers

I turn the fly 90* and use conventional hackle pliers to tie in hackle for a parachute. Seeing this video makes me rethink that. The rotating hackle pliers look like the way to go - fast and easy. HTH

I haven't used standard pliers in over a decade. I either use my fingers or rotary.
